Privacy Policy

Flokkr, which the Cards.LGBT greeting cards shop belongs to, is a platform for the LGBTQ+ community that has the privacy of its users at its very heart. There are not a lot of online shops that take your privacy as seriously as we do.

At a Glance

Against all common practice in the world of e-commerce, we honestly do things differently:

We do not use tracking pixels or similar technology. Most online shops collect and share a huge amount of data with third parties about everything you do and look at on a website so they can build a profile about you and to target you with more personalised ads on social media and across the internet. Not with us. Whatever happens on Flokkr, stays on Flokkr.

We do not use cookies. That’s why we don’t have to show you an annoying cookie banner. Only when you add at least one item to your online shopping trolley, the trolley information is stored in the “Local Storage” memory of your browser. It is completely anonymous and not used for any kind of tracking.

We will not spam you. We are honered to have you as our customer. If you like what we do and offer, you will hopefully remember us and come back in the future. We will not abuse your trust by sending you unwanted marketing material. We’d be delighted if you sign up for our occasional newsletter, but that is completely up to you.

We do not use third party plugins. The vast majority of websites uses a range of (often “free”) plugins for building their websites that allow third parties to track users through the back door. Those tools range from more obvious tools like tracking pixels, to less obvious ones like embedded fonts and videos, social media and link sharing buttons. The pure fact that they’re on a website means that a third party can collect data about your visit to the website to build an enormous profile about your interests and behaviour. We don’t use any of those tools on this website. We embedd only fonts hosted on our own website and have developed our own privacy-first analytics tool in-house, which only records basic and completely anonymous website access statistics. This data cannot be linked to any individuals or even an IP address.

We use Stripe to process your payments securely. Stripe is a well established and trusted partner for securely processing payments when you place an order. Flokkr does not store or get access to your full credit card numbers, bank details etc. See Stripe Privacy Policy for more.

We use your data responsibly. We respect you and your data in return for your trust in us.

  • Stripe to process payments.
  • Royal Mail (or other carriers) to ship the goods you ordered.

For how long do we keep your personal information for?
